When in the Cape Town area and traveling between Muizenberg and Fish Hoek, this is a good place to eat - especially if you love fish.

I enjoyed my wonderful fish meal. It was something I never heard of but enjoyed. The view was amazing. The huge picture windows revealed the pounding waves as we were right on the water but inside of course as it was cool. I saw several surfers. Our servers were very knowledgeable and helped me select a gluten, dairy free meal.... More

This must be the third time we have visited with relatives from simons town. No matter what the weather, sea storms or clear blue skies the views whilst you eat are wonderful. The food here, in particular the sea food is lovely and of great value. Even just a simple dish of fish and chips is well worth sampling!

Friendly service, casual beach ambience. Great pub fare, smells of the ocean, and the tidal pool. You can take a dip, before or after your great meal.

We went for mothers day and had a ball. The service was friendly and professional even being a table of 12. The seafood dishes was top knot and someone had the pork belly that was a big portion. We will be back.
